Andong 1 Group's story

The “Andong 1” group is made up of eight ladies who are working at different businesses. All of the group’s members have great charisma, are happy, and are always looking for a reason to smile.

Endang is one of the members receiving her second loan with her friends. Endang lives in the Susukan in the east of Jakarta and she is a very happy, friendly lady.

Endang is 36 years old, married, and has a sixteen-year-old and an eight-year-old daughter who attend school. Her husband is a motorcycle driver and his income is not enough to cover his family's needs. Every day her husband only earns 80,000 IDR.

Endang is a hard-working and enterprising woman, selling various types of clothing (house dresses, underwear, Moslem fashions) which she sells on credit from house to house. She’s been doing this for 10 years. Endang's business had many customers, but her child had to undergo heart surgery that requires a lot of money and care and she had to stop her business. Now, she wants to start it again from the beginning.

She will use the money from this loan to increase the capital to buy 200 bras. She has a dream to have her own place and stall.

In this group: Suparmi, Herwanti, Endang Dwi, Susanah, Ayu, Saidah, Nurbaety, Mulyani
